Webs got a makeover!

Today we are happy to announce the launch of our brand new look. We’re excited about the newly designed Webs.com so you can enjoy simpler organization, easier navigation, and quick access to your site building tools.

What does this mean for you?

  • No worries, you don’t need to do anything. Your existing login will continue to work.
  • You may notice some elements have moved to a different part of the page to give emphasis to the ones that are most important.
  • A new Control Panel was created that consolidates site-building resources on one page so you can easily and quickly access what you need.

Check out the key changes to the site on the Dashboard and the Site Builder pages:

The Dashboard

Aside from the cleaner look, the main changes to the dashboard include:

  1. A drop-down menu in the top left corner gives you an easy way to switch between your sites, as well as quick links to creating a new site, getting back to your dashboard, accessing support, and logging out.
  2. We have added a “View Control Panel” blue box for each of your sites. The Control Panel houses all the site—building resources you’ll need.
  3. The “+ ADD A NEW WEBSITE” box below your listed sites provides the quickest way to start a new site.
  4. Some elements that used to be on the left side of the page – your account info and updates from our blog – are now on the right side.

Manage Pages

After clicking “Edit This Site” on your Dashboard, you can manage your site’s pages here. There are 4 new options at the top of the page, in the black banner:

  1. As before, you can easily drag the pages of your site up and down to re-order them.
  2. You’ll notice that there are new options at the top of the page, in the black banner:
    • Manage Website: tools for altering the look and feel of your site.
    • Edit Website is where you edit your site, exactly like you used to.
    • Modify Template offers a great new way to check out template options and colors.
    • Control Panel is our new section: it’s a hub for all your site-management resources, from Website Statistics to Email Campaigns.

Modify Template

When you click “Modify Template,” you can:

  1. More easily view template options and by clicking on a color variation, you immediately see a large preview.
  2. Hide the template designer if you like to view the site in full screen, with the button in the middle of the screen.
  3. Have more editing options in a combined header and footer tab.

Control Panel

When you click on the Control Panel, you’ll see all your helpful site-building resources grouped into four main categories:

  1. Manage Website: all the tools you need to alter the look and feel of your site.
  2. Marketing/Site Promotion: all the tools you need to drive more traffic to your site.
  3. Revenue: ingenious, easy ways to make money with your website, such as with a Web Store.
  4. Premium Services: all the VIP benefits you get as a Premium user.

As always, we welcome your feedback.

    I absolutely LOVE the new makeover. It took me a minute to find out how to edit the sidebar, but I found that you just put your mouse over the sidebar and click.

    You have done an amazing job. Now, I’m looking forward to more new features. It would be great if you could add more templates for us. 🙂

    Indeed, I noticed the new look; but sorry, I prefer the old one that’s simple and more user-friendly. Don’t like the reverse design white text on black. Can’t find my way now. For our site alone, is it possible to have the old look please?

  12. Reply
    Dec 21, 2010 - 09:39 AM

    I am sure I will find some advantages like have been detailed here, but so far the old way looked better, was color-coded in a way that made it easier to navigate, and it’s missing the view to site button after making changes in it’s usual spot. It always had view site in the pages menu. It seem to go slower and get more confused with multiple clicks through various administrative menus. I am sure this conserves hosting bandwidth, so I hope it finally starts working faster. I guess it will take some getting used to. The other to me did look better, but maybe others will disagree. I wish that some warning was given, because it took my a while to find this note. The sign-in was even more attractive before. I wonder if Webs partly is just copying another hosting service, but apparently there are improvements. Everything just looked so polished before, and now it looks rudimentary. I don’t get it. Thanks in advance if it does turn out to be better.

    Not real excited over your make-over. As is the case with so many make-overs, the “new and improved” is much more complicated to navigate and provides TOO MUCH info. The look is good — the function is overkill. Thanks!

    “CHANGE” is difficult for many and it takes a while to adjust. In the end, your modifications may prove to be an improvement. However, I would like to point out:
    Colors blue on black are too hard to see on some screens. While it looks OK on my 22″ when working on my 15.6″ laptop — not so good.
    Trying to find items hidden behind hyperlinks – like My Messages – is difficult. Yes, later when we have had experience and “know” where to look it will be easier. Now, especially if you are rushed, it is very difficult.
    Loading SiteBuilder sure seems to be slow today. Maybe you have a lot more traffic as people are looking at the new design???
    While your redesign is appreciated, it sure would be nice to increase the speed. For example, increasing Publish times would be helpful.

    The new update seems to be really slow. I checked my signal and it is excellent. I am learning the new version and really can’t make an adequate decision right now, as with anything new, it takes time to navigate through, just like it was when I first began with the old. Are you going to have any new themes.

Basically, its to large for my large screen so I have to minimize everything, and it won’t let my do variuos tasks, but, lots of the new options for backgrounds and templates are super nice, and WAY better!

    Although the new design is OK (it takes up more space at the top), you should at least make it compatible with IE 8. Sometimes, I need to either enable or disable compatibility view with IE 8, depending on what task I need to do. I do not like the fact that the Webs editor is suited for Firefox.

    The new theme looks very nice and very professional… however:
    1. There are no new templates. Come on, guys. I’m sitting here staring at these cool templates you have shown in the pictures (‘Atlantic’, ‘DoubtFire’, etc.) and it makes me wonder when we might get something. I realize these templates may be either a) prototypes, b) some of those “professionally designed” templates, or c) templates that you make in your free time, but they look cool. I know my template needs some serious template updates.
    2. There are no new applications. I know that you don’t necessarily provide the applications, but ever since the Buzzworthy app was discontinued, I have been dying to get ahold of a good widget/html document for a news feed. Please, at least, get another one of that kind of app back!
    3. There aren’t any updates to what you can do with the pre-existing templates. Multiple navigation bars, double-sidebars, columnized footers (like what you have), etc. would be great to have! I’m not completely (if at all, really) savvy in CSS or even very much HTML so I can’t create that kind of a thing for my website myself. Please help us out!

    Thanks for your time and I hope some of these wants can be answered with an “It’s coming soon!” or an “It will be out ‘x’ day!” I know it’s crazy to ask for that, but I’d really like to see some of these features!

    That was my first thought but nothing shows up. Does it make a difference if I use Google Chrome or Internet Explorer?

      @Aidan: Seems there might be a bug with your template. While we are working to fix it, please use the following URL to go directly to sidebar manager: http://members.webs.com/s/sidebars/index

    Template looks so sleek, polished and professional. Combined with the other enhanced features may be the tipping point for me to switch over to Webs for simplified elogence for a non techie like me who doesn’t like fussing with HTML code and theme stuff in WordPress.

    Everyone here who is mad is just plain dumb… Empty ur browser chach and cookies for the 12th time now. Webs this looks great much more exeptable. And still think that you should let us remove ads through the credits shop! Like 200 credits for 6 months of no ads…. And if I get a domain from the credits shop will it remove the ads for the one year that the domain is activated?
    Love the updates

    Just would like to let you know that since webs site upgrade i have been unable to edit any content in my webpage. Everything loads up ok apart from the toolbar which enables you to change font and add content. I have tried on a few pc’s and also internet explorer and firefox, but still no luck. Is this a bug you know about or are in the process of rectifying the problem or is it something to do with my pc’s?

    I agree with Jay, I can’t do much on my site either. I can’t upload any photos (which is very frustrating as I rely on my site for this). The format doesn’t fit my computer screen unless I change the resolution, making the letters so small they are hard to see. There are other things I don’t like either. I have put a lot of work into my site and now don’t know if I will have to move it to a different company. I picked Webs because at the time it was easy to use and I could manage my site at any time. Now that is not true.

    The new colour scheme looks classy, though the top toolbar is now cut off on IE, so I have to use Google Chrome to edit the content on my pages. IE was much better for editing, as I could paste and resize images in the content boxes, so I hope this is just a temporary glitch 😉

    The black background is darker and harder to read. The builder looks a little different, but basically laid out the same with no new features on the edit tool bar. It took me an hour to find the tiny little icon that you hover over to get a little window so I could log out. It was right out in the open before. The old look was bright and easy to read. This new look is NOT!

    When you publish a page, the little window that pops up in the middle of the screen used to have a choice to take you directly back to the main builder page. Now that feature is not in that window, and is an extra step at the top of the page. That is not easier to navigate. When we first log into the builder, it should go directly to the main site builder page where we make a selection of a page to edit. But it goes to the website home page instead.

    The problem with keeping a link opening in a new window, is still a problem, but now it is worse. I can’t have a link and a separate photo with the same link to open in a new window. One opens a new window, the other does not. If I fix the one that doesn’t, then the other won’t open in new window. If I fix that one, then the other one is bad again.

    I prefer the old look. It was easier to see and navigate. And I could fix the open in new window problems, but not now. This is not an improvement. You should have left the old program on and fixed the few commands like I suggested and got jumped on for. I’m paying you $100 a year and you just made things worse.

    Nice change but – I use drop down menus. I’d like to be able to deignate a page as just a menu header on the page list so that if a user clicks on the header nothing happens (no url). I and others have been requesting this fo a long time. Right now, I have to put a message on that page telling the user to make another selection which is not elegant at all!

    hi, i don’t really like that the space at the top of the editing pages is taken up by the huge box at the top of the screen, it was much easier to edit my site when i had more room to view it, not complaining, im thankful for an opportunity just to have a free site. (Not sure if anyone has already posted this issue or not) I am also having the same editing problems as the others mentioned. Thanks, Henry

    I like some parts of the new design and know you guys work hard to get it all just right. Just wanted to say I liked it better before when I could see more of my site when editing. Where as now there is a big part of the screen being taken up by the huge top tool bar(?) I can only see a very small portion of my site, which makes it more difficult to edit. Im also having problems editing text boxes and pictures, it wont let me center any text, I can’t even click on the center box anymore.

    In the main, problems caused by new design have been resolved – especially footer bar appearing across page – thanks to your team for working on it. Since following instructions by other user to paste text to Notebook and then copy and paste from that to website, my problems with text also seem resolved. The design was great anyway and so flexible so my appreciation to you all. Ita

    Have you added any way to change the colors of individual event titles on a given day on the calendar? Or be able to highlight them? Something to set each event apart? It’s frustrating for all events/items in a day to all look the same.
